Visit Houston.

Whether you want to fly into George Bush Intercontinental Airport or Houston’s other area airport, Hobby, Southwest can get you on your way to the Big Heart with fares you’ll love. Set on the northern edge of the city, Houston (Bush) is the perfect jumping off point for your next Houston-area adventure—just grab a rental car and hop on the Hardy Toll Road expressway to get going!

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and in Houston, that includes a sprawling museum district. The Houston Museum District is home to 19 cultural institutions celebrating art, history, and science—a destination that’s sure to have something for every visitor. Walkable and bikeable, Houston Museum District has four zones to explore and two beautiful parks in which to enjoy some time in the Texas sun between exhibits. Fans of the macabre and mortuary science should check out the Museum of Funeral History—hearses and exhibits on famous funerals abound.

The nickname the Culinary Capital of the South is an encouraging reason to explore another Houston cultural institution: its food scene. Tex-Mex and barbeque are can’t-miss cuisines, but Houston is home to more than these reliably Texan tastes. Pre-World War II, Louisiana Creoles brought their foods and flavors to the area and they spread during the post-war migration boom. Touring the neighborhoods of Houston opens eaters up to a veritable world tour of tastes—Meyerland for authentic Jewish foods, Missouri City for Filipino favorites, and Little Saigon for Vietnamese dishes.
